"This will be an Adoption Lottery to ensure fairness for all who are interested in adopting," GCAS said in a statement.

Normal adoption fees will still apply.

The lottery will take place at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on the upper level of Guilford County Animal Services' parking lot. Registration for the lottery will take place from 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Each person 18 and over can enter only once.

All the dogs have been spayed or neutered and microchipped.

On May 3, Greensboro police went to serve a drug warrant at a home in the 4300 block of United Street.

Officers found 22 Shih Tzus in poor condition in the home.

Guilford County Animal Shelter employees went to the home to remove the dogs and take them to the shelter.

The dogs were all vaccinated at the shelter and shelter employees said they will find a way to make room for them.
